The Power Plant

Join us underneath the hanging installation of Derek Sullivan’s 52 newly commissioned artist books (a component of his exhibition Albatross Omnibus) for the first public get-together of Book Club. White wine and beer will be available.

Since 2009, a group of local conceptual artists, writers, curators, and others interested in artists’ books have gathered as Book Club, and tonight its members will respond to Sullivan’s project show-and-tell-style with examples from their private treasure troves of artists’ books. Reflecting on everything from the distinctive formal qualities of books to the history of the medium and the interrelationships among literature, language, text, and print in art, Book Clubbers will expose us to the rich legacy of artists’ books. The members of Book Club are: Bill Clarke, Dave Dyment, Wendy Gomoll, Michael Klein, Micah Lexier, Derek McCormack, Roula Partheniou, Sarah Robayo Sheridan, Derek Sullivan, and Paul Van Kooy.
